First edition. xii, 148pp. Blue/gray cloth, gilt spine lettering, cream endpapers. Dust jacket price 8.95. SIGNED BY AUTHOR to half-title page. Signed copies of this book are rare. Number Five in the Literary Structures series. Only 1574 copies of the first hardcover edition published. Book is in Fine, unblemished condition; appears unread. Dust jacket has 2 small stains to back panel top edge, slight spine fade and age-toning, slight wear to spine and corner tips; still quite crisp and bright and fully intact."John Gardner (1933-1982) was an important American writer and academic whose talent was so great, in so many disciplines, that when one looks back on his lengthy career as novelist, poet, essayist, dramatist, translator and teacher, it is tempting to quit--just quit, cold turkey--even trying to write. He was that good. He entered DePauw University, intending to study chemistry, but the lure of writing proved too strong for him as an undergraduate. Gardner taught at Oberlin, Chico State College, and San Francisco State College. He taught the young Raymond Carver at Chico and founded the prestigious literary magazine MSS, publishing the work of Joyce Carol Oates and W.S. Merwin. In 1963 he published 'The Edge of the Woods' in the Quarterly Review of Literature and translated 'The Alliterative Morte Arthure' and 'The Complete Works of Gawain-Poet', and also managed to complete a thousand-page study on the life and works of Geoffrey Chaucer. In 1964 New American Library agreed to publish 'The Resurrection' and expressed an interest in Nickel Mountain as well. In short order, Gardner began 'The Sunlight Dialogs', taught at Southern Illinois University, and published 'Nickel Mountain' in 1966. A long productive life of teaching and writing fiction ensued while teaching at the University of Detroit, Northwestern, The Bread Loaf Writers' Conference, Bennington, Skidmore, Williams, George Mason University, and finally at the State University of New York at Binghampton, where he headed the creative writing program until his death.It is safe to say that an entire generation of American writers has benefited from John Gardner's love for literature and his unique ability to translate the quotidian processes of the working author into meaningful dialog and example in the classroom. Gardner is perhaps most famous for two books about writing, 'On Moral Fiction' and 'The Art of Fiction', works that should grace any serious writer's bookshelf. Throughout his lengthy literary career, John Gardner's personal life was less-than-neat.

[This book is] the scholar-novelist-poet's analysis of allegorical modes in a few major poems from England's great age of allegory, the seventh century to, roughly, the eleventh. What John Gardner is out to understand and describe is not so much the "meaning" of particular poems - though his study inevitably deals, to some extent, with meaning and offers critical interpretations - but how the various kinds of Anglo-Saxon allegory work, what happens when several completely different kinds of allegory are brought together in one poem (as in Beowulf), and what it is that makes the different kinds of allegory not just intellectually but emotionally effective." - dust jacket flap., Southern Illinois University Press, 1975

Focusing on the works of Cynewulf, the Caedmonic school, and the great Beowulf--poet, John Gardner traces the develop-ment of Anglo-Saxon Christian poetic style. This latest contribution to a distinguished new series is a scholar-novelist-poet's analysis of allegorical modes in a few ma-jor poems from England's great age of allegory, the seventh century to, roughly, the eleventh. What John Gardner is out to under-stand and describe is not so much the "meaning" of particular poems--though his study inevitably deals, to some extent, with meaning and offers critical interpre-tations--but how the various kinds of Anglo-Saxon allegory work, what hap-pens when several completely different kinds of allegory are brought together in one poem (as in "Beowulf"), and what it is that makes the different kinds of allegory not just intellectually but emotionally effective. Gardner asks the right questions from both the scholar's and the novelist's points of view, which turn out to be important for an understanding of the whole Anglo-Saxon poetic tradition.
